Are you a male or female? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? Does anything make it better or worse? When did it start? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Is your stress increased at home or work just before your symptoms started? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered them? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?
